AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS

 

******************

WHAT TO DO?

  This informative brochure is designed to assist you in case you are involved in an automobile accident. An automobile accident can happen at any time or at any place.

Under Texas Law you must have car insurance when you are driving a motor vehicle. Further, under Texas Law this insurance at a minimum must provide liability insurance protection.

  In an automobile accident one cannot predict what type of injuries you may receive prior to an accident. You may receive minor injuries or serious injuries that may be life threatening. As we all know the costs for medical care are high, and if you sustain serious injuries and in some cases minor injuries you may have large medical bills. Further, who will cover the damage to your car? With the high costs of car repair and the high value of present day vehicles, it would be logical to obtain all the automobile insurance possible.       Therefore, a lot of individuals obtain full coverage insurance thereby protecting themselves against uninsured or under-insured motorists, and large medical bills. I would recommend you consult with your insurance agent to determine the best insurance coverage for you.

One of the most important things to remember if you are involved in an automobile accident or other type of wreck, is that information, facts, and details are important.

Call your local police to make a report, and assist you at the accident scene.

Then find out the other driver's name, address, phone number, insurance carrier and license plate number. Also, if there are any witnesses, obtain their name, address, and phone number. Further, anything you may say at a wreck scene, may come forward later in the form of courtroom testimony. It is important that you always give accurate facts (details) to the police officer who is investigating the wreck. These facts (details) or parts of these facts usually are placed in the accident report by the officer. Thereby, making them part of the permanent record.

     If you are involved in an automobile accident, I recommend you immediately contact your insurance agent, thereby involving your insurance company to provide you with insurance protection as provided in your policy.

     Then contact your attorney to protect your legal rights.

     On the next section of this brochure you will find a short form for you to fill out if you are involved in an automobile accident (wreck).
